About

Retired teacher/gift shop and inn keeper turned jewelry designer creator

Upon retiring, after teaching for almost 40 years, I bought a lovely 1868 Historic stone building with lots of additions and turned it into an inn and gift shop. The area was rich in cultural and artistic talent so I tapped into that and was able to showcase many artists' work as well as my own floral designs. My husband had recently died so I put my energy into creating this wonderful site on the Mississippi River in Wisconsin. However, I missed seeing my daughter back in Des Moines, so finally sold and moved back.

My hobbies had always included doing almost any creative art, so I started taking classes on something new: jewelry making. Basic stringing, wire work, soldering, riveting, lamp work, metal clay, you name it and I found a class. My studio grew and grew so soon I began doing Arts and Craft shows, then had an online shop with another company. It closed so I'm now setting up shop on etsy.

My church is a vital part of my life and as chair of our Mission Team the desire for giving back has led me to donate 10% of all proceeds to our local food pantries. So, with each purchase, you are actually helping hungry people in the Des Moines area.
